Cate Blanchett is not a fan of social media. While most celebrities debut hair transformations on Instagram or Snapchat, Blanchett steers clear. But that doesn’t mean we’re paying less attention to the Australian actress. C’mon, she’s a knockout beauty and she’s playing the first female villain, Hela, in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok film. Plus, she makes 47-years-old look so damn good.
Earlier this week we noticed Blanchett on the streets of Manhattan in a new blonde bob. “New hair, who dis?” we shouted at her. Ok, not really. But, the look comes as a bit of a surprise because just a few days earlier, she was at an event in New York City with shoulder-length blonde hair. Who knew she would make a change?
And let’s be very clear, this isn’t Blanchett’s first foray into the bob hairstyle. Last year, the actress’s hairstylist Robert Vetica cut her hair into a bob the morning of the Oscars. Talk about a cut above the rest, huh? Now that Cate Blanchett’s hair is much shorter again, we’re reminded that she’s a classic beauty who’s quite deserving of a classic bob.
Now that Cate Blanchett’s hair is much shorter, here are other bobs we love:
- Pink Debuts New Pink (and Purple) Bob And You Must See It Now
- Whoa, Watch This Stylist Cut a Perfect Bob in Under One Minute
- Olivia Wilde Unconsciously Copied Kate Mara’s Blonde Bob
If you remember, Blanchett has worn bobs and lobs on and off since the early 2000’s and her latest one proves (once again) that the haircut is pretty flattering on all face shapes. We’ll have to stay tuned to her public appearances for her next hair makeover, but we’re guessing the next one comes in November just in time for the premiere of Thor: Ragnarok.
